This is a time for music,
This is a time for song,
A time when we are happy,
When we all get along,

A day for celebration,
A day for food and drink,
A day for generosity,
To give, and thank, and think.

There is no room for hatred,
For anger or despair,
All we desire is hope and love,
For people everywhere.

So ponder this solution,
Consider life this way:
Let's be like this the whole year through,
And not just Christmas Day.
